Yeah I know...
The rounded tit on the end of the ARP headstuds makes it a lot easier feeding on the washers while the motor is in the car too.
I put the lubed washer on the shaft of a skinny screwdriver and while holding the end of it against the end of the head stud I pushed the washer down and onto the stud with another skinny screwdriver. I lucked out and didn't drop any washers down into the cooling fins on the head while doing it... That would have sucked.
On a motor stand that operation would have been much easier with the motor turned sideways or at an angle but yeah I'm nuts and I'm doing this in the car with the back of the motor lowered down about a foot on to a jackstand in my driveway

It's not bad sitting on the ground behind the car and working on it and my back is OK but it hurt when I hit my head on a bumber shock stud yesterday...
